The BC public has voted and local business The Playpen Pet Boarding & Grooming has been named one of the top ten best small businesses in the province, as part of the Small Business BC Successful You Awards Contest (SYA).

Cranbrook business The Playpen Pet Boarding & Grooming is competing for the Best Company Award, recognizing businesses that demonstrate exceptional leadership and a track record of growth and profitability.

Throughout the last two months the company gained enough online votes from their community to be named a top ten finalist in this award category.

Finalists were selected by the residents of BC who benefit from these businesses, with votes collected online using social media, e-communications and word of mouth.

The Successful You Awards Contest recognizes the contributions outstanding BC entrepreneurs make in six award categories. This year’s finalists come from diverse sectors such as technology, hospitality, tourism and health care. Over 25 communities in British Columbia are represented.

The top ten will go on to submit an application which judges will use to decide the top 5 finalists from each category, announced on January 30, 2013.

The winners will be announced on February 28, 2013 in Vancouver at the Successful You Awards Ceremony. More information on the finalists and the Successful You Awards can be found at www.successfulyou.ca.
